The Music Tree is run by Tonya Norris Assoc.Dip.Music Hon.S.C.SM, winner of the 2012 "Significant Contribution to Children Award" Tonya is passionate about teaching children and parents about both the joys and benefits of music, particularly in early childhood. Tonya started her musical career playing classical guitar and later taking up piano and then the harp just before the birth of her first child. She studied with the St Cecilia School of music taking examinations through the London based Trinity College of Music. During this time she also completed studies in Music Theory. She then went on to do an Associate Diploma of Music at the University of Tasmania. Tonya's teaching practice began when she was 18 and gradually grew to become a full time job. As well as private teaching Tonya has tutored in a number of local schools including Scotch Oakburn College where she continues to teach piano (and the occasional guitar or ukulele lesson) to this day. Tonya has performed with the St. Cecilia School of Music orchestra as well as in a number of duos and ensembles. Tonya has always enjoyed the challenge of teaching young students and after the arrival of her first child in 2002 decided to move into the area of early childhood music. Since then The Music Tree has grown into the success it is today. In 2011 Tonya ran the Early Childhood Music program for Trevallyn Primary School. The Music Tree also ran the East Launceston Primary Music Program for Kindergarten children and has a regular program at the Pilgrim Childcare Centre and with the Tasmanian Aboriginal Child Care Association. Tonya is committed to ongoing professional development and regularly attends conferences and workshops throughout Australia and is thus able to constantly stimulate her students with new ideas and materials. Tonya is convinced she has the perfect job - offering quality education while singing, dancing, dressing up, playing instruments, being silly and having lots of fun with young children – fantastic!

All three of my girls have been a part of The Music Tree since they were babies.
I believe that The Music Tree is having a profound effect on all three of my children’s early childhood developments as they have directly benefited in so many positive ways.
I could not imagine where they would be in their development without experiences with The Music Tree!
